The article focuses on the criticisms and urge of stakeholders to improve the risk evaluation and mitigation strategy (REMS) programs in health care systems due to its focus in therapeutic risks. It states that the urge was made due to the concerns poses by REMS' documentation of risk management in stress of medical staffs, which may affect the patient care he will provide in emergency cases. Moreover, it says that REMS was also suggested to be made electronically to cut its compliance costs.
